This monster appears when a Tainted animal spirit comes upon a human in desperate straits. Stranded and isolated people are the preferred targets. Especially those who resort to cannibalism or other loathsome practices to survive in the wilderness. If the victim gives up its soul for the chance to survive, it becomes Wendigo. A Feral-like monster who feeds on human flesh.
These monsters are thankfully very rare. Their name is a Native American term that has also been applied to normal Ferals, and Wendigos have been known to appear in the wilderness of North America. Still, they are just as likely to appear in the jungles of Southeast Asia, the Amazonian Rain Forest, or the plains of Africa. Whenever someone is tempted to eat human flesh and has given up all hope, driven only by the will to survive at any cost this transformation is possible. Only a handful of these beings exist at any given time and they rarely survive more than a few years before their Taint consumes them or someone destroys them. A extremely rare chance exists that the spirit will survive the death of the mortal it’s bound to and can then infect someone else.
